Day Two in New York City

Statue of Liberty

View Of The City Last time we were in NY the pedestal was closed for renovations, We spent a long time in the museum and the pedestal we really enjoyed it.  Claire listened to the kid and adult version of the audio tour. It was a great morning/afternoon.

I would not come again during Memorial Weekend. One of the reasons we homeschool is to be able to travel in non peak times. The New Yorkers may have been away but everyone else was at the Statue Liberty today. It took almost an hour to get back on the ferry to go Battery Park. It took an hour and half to see the Empire State Building last night.

Claire Found the StateionWe walked around the financial district and grabbed a late lunch early dinner. I then gave the kids a map and told them they had to get us back to our hotel. I told Claire to get us to the bus terminal and Cobey to get us to the right bus. They could not ask me for help but they could ask other people.  Claire found the right subway stop we needed, bought our tickets and then got us to the track. She had to ask which train on the left or right but she did great. Cobey guided us to the bus stop, got bus tickets and then got us to the correct gate. He almost let us get off one stop early but other than that he did great. I was very proud. And they were back in time for Claire to swim.
